Aug 25, 2014

This episode may have been a flashback, but its message is arguably more important to the show’s present than it’s past. In last week’s episode we saw a troubled Jill Garvey ponder as to...

Donald Trump Sues Bill Maher for 5 Million Bananas

Donald Trump Sues Bill Maher for 5 Million Bananas

It looks like someone left the Orangutan cage open again.  Donald Trump, longtime target of Real Time host Bill Maher’s punchlines, is a bit upset over Bill’s jokes. The Don today said in an interview with Jay Leno that he would be suing the comedian over his… comedy. The joke in question: Clearly poking fun of the Don’s $5 million offer to President Obama to “open up his college records” Bill, in jest, said he’d give $5 million to Trump’s charity of choice if the businessman could prove he’s not the.. “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Well, Mr Trump isn’t one to sit...

Characters of HBO’s ‘The Wire’ React to Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl Win

Characters of HBO’s ‘The Wire’ React to Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl Win

In a city wrought with crime, corruption and drug-related violence a home-team Super Bowl victory brings a much-needed ray of sunshine into even the darkest depths of the criminal underworld.  Drug lords like Avon Barksdale, petty police Majors like Bill Rawls and even that throat-slitting Russian guy down by the docks took a break from their normal routines to cheer for Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens last night. Win or lose it seems like everybody’s got something to say in this town.  Here are just some of the character’s reactions to the Ravens victory last night: Slim Charles was eager to get things going before the...

S2 / E4 ‘It’s a Shame About Ray’ – The Best Episode of ‘GIRLS’ to Date

S2 / E4 ‘It’s a Shame About Ray’ – The Best Episode of ‘GIRLS’ to Date

Last night’s episode of ‘GIRLS’ was the absolute best the series has to offer thus far. We see the consequences of past decisions – pulled from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. We were cracking up with laughter, we were fighting back tears, we found ourselves recognizing notable changes in our characters. Just when I was beginning to doubt Lena Dunham, ‘GIRLS’ puts out, in my opinion, one of the most memorable episodes in HBO history. I was cracking up throughout the entire episode – Hannah’s theatrics with the butcher knife, Shoshonna realizes she has a roommate, Jessa meets...

HBO Go to Apple TV in 2013?

HBO Go to Apple TV in 2013?

Reports have been circulating this weekend that HBO Go may finally make its way onto one of the last holdout systems not yet capable of streaming the premium cable’s shows: Apple TV. Due to what are most likely licensing conflicts HBO has been unable to offer HBO Go on Apple TV dispite the fact that it’s available on iPad, iPhone, Roku and almost all other devices with an internet connection and a screen.  But regardless it looks like the long wait is over for those of you HBO fans using Apple TV as their primary form of streaming. You will of course still need an HBO subscription but we know that some people practically live...

This Just In: Another Series for Dunham?

This Just In: Another Series for Dunham?

Miss Lena Dunham just might have more to offer HBO if they option what she is going to write next. The multi-hyphenate of GIRLS, along with show runner and executive producer Jenni Konner (pictured at right) plan to write another potential series based on the life of one Betty Halbreich. Who, you ask? Why you know Betty, she’s the ultimate personal shopper for Bergdorf Goodman. Anyone who is rich and famous in New York goes through her apparently. She has been the dresser and confidante of three generations of Manhattan socialites and stars including Joan Rivers, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Couric and Glenn Close....

Development Slate: Movie Deals including GAME CHANGE sequel & More

Development Slate: Movie Deals including GAME CHANGE sequel & More

There is quite a bit on the Development Slate as of late; enough that it will be broken down into three posts. I’m playing a little catch-up as these posts lists some deals that went down in late December through January. I’ll fire them off here and then later through 2013 we will post again updating these works as HBOWatch learns more. I apologize if you got this news elsewhere but I put my best spin on it just the same. Let’s get to it. The political GAME CHANGE gets a sequel. HBO likes its political stories especially if it can feature the agenda of the Republican Party. Well, a deal has gone forth that will focus on America’s...

Production for TRUE BLOOD Season Six is moving along as further casting for the season is taking shape. Two talented ladies were recently added. Jurnee Smollett  (pictured at right) will play a character named Nicole Wright. She is quoted as being “not concerned with money and more concerned with the common good and doing what’s right.”  Amelia Rose Blaire will play Willa Burrell, daughter of the Governor of Louisiana. She is said to “have long clashes with her father over vampire rights.” Politics have always been an underlying thread in the TRUE BLOOD story. It is more than just about which vampire rules which jurisdiction but...

David Chase Talks THE SOPRANOS

David Chase Talks THE SOPRANOS

Here are some brief comments from THE SOPRANOS creator David Chase that you might consider good news/bad news. You decide. Mr. Chase told website Showbiz 411, in an interview mainly about his big screen debut as director of a movie called Not Fade Away, that a THE SOPRANOS movie is not going to happen. Roger Friedman’s piece for the site states -   What about a “Sopranos” movie, I asked. “No, unh uh,” he said, shaking his head, and his wife even agreed. I did try to slip in–’those people are dead’–but Chase refuses to say what happened to Tony, Carmella, Meadow and AJ. That is the bad news portion of this post....

This Just In: Warner Bros. Green Lights ENTOURAGE Movie

This Just In: Warner Bros. Green Lights ENTOURAGE Movie

HBOWatch reported way back on 09.23.12 that ENTOURAGE was shaping up as a movie.  As stated, creator Doug Ellin was well on his way to completing a screenplay. At that time there was even rumor that production could be underway by now. Well, that is all well and good but, unless a movie is a pure independent film, it doesn’t go far without a studio behind it. Finally, just yesterday, Warner Bros., having read Ellin’s completed screenplay I presume, committed to an ENTOURAGE movie. That means the continued Hollywood exploits of Vincent Chase, his brother, his manager and his driver or, as we know them, Johnny “Drama,” Eric “E.”...
